OPHI Seminars

The Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative is holding its weekly seminar series this term. The seminar series brings together academic staff and students interested in multidimensional poverty in an informal intellectual and social environment where we will discuss research related to different aspects of the measurement or explanation of multidimensional poverty.

The seminars are held on Mondays from 13:00-14:00 in Seminar Room 2 or 3, Queen Elizabeth House, 3 Mansfield Road, Oxford OX1 3TB. Everyone is welcome, and a complimentary sandwich lunch is available on a first come, first served basis.
